Brendan Eich Steps Down as Mozilla CEO due to Controversy over Anti-Gay Marriage Proposition
Co-founder Brendan Eich has resigned from his position as Mozilla's CEO because of the controversy surrounding his $1,000 contribution to an anti-gay marriage proposition in California. The company said "we haven't stayed true to ourselves," referencing Mozilla's lack of action regarding the controversy. Eich's decision came after intense pressure from Mozilla employees and developers in a public discussion. The company has not yet decided who will fill the position; last year, 25 people were interviewed before Eich was chosen.
